Sarah Palin is keeping up the infomercial peddler charge against President Barack Obama, criticizing his “ShamWow” speech in Boston and accusing him of lying to the American people.
Palin took to her Facebook page early Thursday morning to criticize the speech the president delivered on his health care law in the Massachusetts capital city.
“President Obama flew in to Boston today to deliver another ‘ShamWow’-style infomercial for Obamacare, and it went about as well as his entourage’s snarled traffic debacle in Beantown,” Palin wrote. “Thanks for the infomercial, Mr. President. I don’t know anyone who wants your ‘ShamWow’ product, but the IRS will make sure we call that toll free number or go online to order it right now … well, just as soon as your impossibly broken $600 million website is fixed and your phones lines aren’t busy.”
The former vice presidential nominee and governor of Alaska said she was looking for an apology from the administration for the knowing lies she said the president told.
“For starters we anticipated a presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, ‘If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.’ Make no mistake, he knew he was lying when he said that,” Palin wrote. “Was remorse and sympathy shown for Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare? Nope. … Obama didn’t lie to you when he said, ‘if you like your plan, you can keep it.’ Why? Because, you sillies, you DIDN’T REALLY like the plan you chose for yourselves! No arguing. Barack Obama knows best and he’ll tell you whether you actually liked your insurance plan or not.”
Palin encouraged her supporters to use the 2014 election to “make [their] voices heard.”
